I'm disappointed with this hotel. Lets start with the bathroom. The over-powering smell was so bad that I needed to change rooms, just like standing right on top of one of Bangkok's wastewater drains. All the practicalities fail: the hairdryer cords are so short that it constantly pops out of the socket whenever you try to use it, there are only large toiletry dispensers so you share them with all guests and anyway they constantly jam and dribble, and the grouting on all tiles, bath and sink has been done very badly. it's uneven, has been smeared over the walls, not cleaned properly and left stains. In the room, the airconditioning is stuck on freeze, and use of cheap wood veneer on the desk tops and minibar fridge means its already scratching badly and looking cheap, despite the hotel only just opening. this hotel is all about superficial style, but no practical substance. The staff are friendly enough, but there's alot of them (read, too many), they appear disorganised, and they have the irritating habit of all chorussing the Thai hello as soon as you enter a room like reception. I stay at five star hotels on business roughly 150-200nights per year and this one bombs out versus peers.
